Marvel’s latest TV show ‘The Gifted’ premieres on Star World

MUMBAI: The Gifted is the latest superhero TV show from the blockbuster-producing studio – Marvel that is a spin-off of the cult favourite X-Men movie franchise. Season 1 of The Gifted premieres on Indian television on 26th July at 9 PM, and will air weekdays only on Star World. 

In The Gifted, the X-Men do not exist anymore and the anti-mutant sentiment is running high amongst people and the government. This family adventure series tells the emotional story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their teenage children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family seeks help from an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

While the series has introduced a variety of new and exciting mutants such as Thunderbird who has super strength, foresight, and heightened senses and Polaris who is Magneto’s daughter and much like him, has the power to manipulate magnetism.A refreshing take on the X-men franchise, The Gifted has been praised as‘an exciting yet grounded chapter to the X-Men saga’and is punctuated with superior production quality and stunning visual effects.

The series also has a brilliant ensemble cast comprising of True Blood and The Bastard Executioner fame, Stephen Moyer, Person of Intereststar Amy Ackers, Once Upon a Time, The Hangover, Gotham fame Jamie Chung, Skyler Samuels of Scream Queens and The Duff fame among others.Each episode of the series is directed by a host of renowned filmmakers such as X-Men movie’s creator, Bryan Singer, Lost and Private Practice creators Karen Gaviola, NYPD Blue director, Steven DePaul, Jessica Jones director Liz Friedlander and more!

The Gifted is not an ordinary show; it is opportunity to delve into the unprecedented and immerse in the magic as life gets altered and mutants become a reality. A wondrous and innovative story, it steers clear of the age-old formula that X-men followed and weaves together family dynamics and the supernatural brilliantly!

Watch the premiere ofThe Gifted on Star World on 26th July at 9 PM.
